Ann Coulter throws two-day Twitter tantrum against Delta

Another: "Just when you think it's safe to fly them again, the worst airline in America is STILL @Delta".

But the airline said Coulter changed her seat to 15D, which was by the aisle, within 24 hours of the flight. According to the airline, all passengers were asked to move to the seats noted on their tickets, and customers complied without incident.

More than 32 seemingly angry tweets by Coulter followed her inconvenience on a flight from NY to Florida.

Ann Coulter is no stranger to temper tantrums, but she spent the better part of this weekend outdoing herself while raging at Delta airlines.

"We are disappointed that the customer has chosen to publicly attack our employees and other customers by posting derogatory and slanderous comments and photos in social media", the airline tweeted.

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter typically uses her social media platform of millions of followers to communicate her views on politics and culture.

Delta responded in perhaps the flawless way, not riling up Coulter but acknowledging that such abusive behavior is not acceptable. And perhaps Coulter could have realized that moving over three seats for a short-haul flight isn't that big of a deal, and if she wanted more pampering she could have flown first class.

The statement by Delta went on to say that Coulter's behavior had been unacceptable and unnecessary.

Coulter also implied that the problem with Delta gate agents is that they are protected by a union when she tweeted "Does your union hate you, @Delta?"

After Delta released its statement, Coulter continued to attack the airline and her critics on Twitter. One tweet suggested racism at the heart of Coulter's ire (the other passenger had a dark complexion.) Another tweet tried to connect what happened to the conservative commentator with President Trump's immigration policies and the travel ban.

A considerable number of people on Twitter were entirely unsympathetic to Coulter, thinking that she was making much to do about very little.

The carrier said it will refund the $30.00 Coulter paid for her preferred seat.

So glad I took time investigate the aircraft & PRE-BOOK a specific seat on @Delta, so some woman could waltz at the last min & take my seat.

Coulter then began drudging up old, negative articles about Delta, which is when they made a decision to hit back in an epic way.
